There are a few things to understand when talking about off-season moves in baseball, the first of which is: without a salary cap, it is hard to have a great idea of what a team’s budget is.
Brantley will return to full baseball activity in 4 to 5 months, according to the team.
Within the first quarter of what was supposed to be a contentious affair between a team and one of their former stars, the idea of ‘me versus you’ went out the window. At least for a bit.
The preseason is over for the Cleveland Cavaliers, but only in name. The time normally used to help jell new teammates was not entirely helpful for the three-time defending Eastern Conference champions.
Tuesday is the first day of the regular season for the Cleveland Cavaliers. According to them, that’s all it is.
The Cleveland Indians will be the favorites for their third straight American League Central title in 2018, but how they might get there is maybe more of an unknown at this point than perhaps feels comfortable.
The expectation for the 2017 Cleveland Indians was vastly higher than that of the 2016 version. The timeline was much shorter.
If it is Callaway’s desire to become a manager immediately, then there should be no stopping him. The 42-year old has emerged as an elite coach in baseball and should be given an opportunity somewhere. He probably will have that choice.
There were no words to describe the abrupt redirection of Corey Kluber’s season and how it ended. There are not many reasons it could have happened the way it did.
In 2016, the Indians were simply beat by a team that was better in a seven game series. In 2017, the Indians beat themselves. That qualifies as an abject failure.
